Boost your immune system, burn calories, lower your blood pressure and cholesterol, relax, relieve pain, keep your mind sharp and live longer....owning a pet can do all of these things for seniors. However, we explore the pros and cons in detail on whether this is a good idea for you or your loved one and how it can affect the whole family. We are joined by Dr. Pam Tronetti and Janet Rooks with the Senior Consultation Center from Parrish Healthcare as we even touch on specific pet solutions based on a seniors medical diagnosis and needs.
